Jeff Thompson works on nanofabricated atom traps in the lab of
Professor Mikhail Lukin. Prior to coming to Harvard, Jeff received his
BS from Yale University, where he also performed experiments on
laser-cooling mechanical systems with Jack Harris. After graduating,
he spent a year working with ultracold atoms in optical lattices in
the group of Immanuel Bloch in Mainz, Germany.
